This is NOT an accredited course and we recommend that if you are going to work professionally as a coach you look at the accreditation route at a later date 
​We don't make promises of 6 or 7 figure salaries after completing the course: it will help you be a better leader, manager and business person if you apply the work: we can't do it for you! 
Up-sell you the whole time: it may be that you just want to do a course at this level: we believe all of our clients can make their own decisions and support you to do that

Q & A

How much is the time commitment? 

The Coaching skills course is self paced: each module and reflections will take 2-3 hours and you get a new module each week, equally you have a 2 hour group call each month which you can join and get support for your coaching (as well as see coaching demonstrations) 

What are the other people like? 

It is a wide range of people from those brand new to coaching & looking to see if it is a good fit for them to people who have been coaching for a while and want to refresh their skills to those who want to use coaching in their role or their business and want a foundation to build on. 

Is it ICF accredited? 

No, it isn't : we feel like if you want to do ICF accredited training as a non accredited coach the ACTP is the gold standard which is why we offer everyone who wants to upgrade from the coaching skills course £500 off if they have already enrolled on the certificate  

Payment of tuition and fees: 

All payments for fees will be completed by the start of the program, if you are paying on a payment plan you will have paid at least the first instalment when the program starts. 
Late payments may mean that your place on the program is reviewed according to our terms and conditions.
